Fall TV Week 4 & 5


Raising Hope – This show continues to be so hilarious. I feel like it has gotten better and better as the seasons have gone by. Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman continue to deliver the funniest lines.

Hart of Dixie – I can’t even lie. I love this show. It’s so cliché and really not that good but it just make me nostalgic for the WB from the 90’s when Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, 7th Heaven, etc were still on. The love triangle with George and Wade is getting tired. I like her with Wade. She’s so blah with George but Wade keeps her on her toes. This whole Lavon and his ex girlfriend running against each other for mayor is so stupid. I guess they needed another story for Lavon since he has nothing going on with his character except for being the wise friend to Zoe. I will keep watching though.

90210 – Cliche, predictable, overly dramatic; these are all things that describe this show, yet I still love watching it. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. My favorite thing is to do is to yell at the screen at all the plot holes and predict what is going to happen in the episode. This season Dixon is in a wheel chair; Silver is feeling sorry for herself because all her boys left her; Annie has nothing to do but fawn over Dixon; Naomi and Max are married and his friend hates her; Liam is an idiot and being blackmailed by that psycho heffa Vanessa; Navid is trying and failing at being a bad boy; and Adrianna slept with someone else has feelings for him but is staying with Dixon out of pity because he was in an accident. The season just started and it’s already pretty ridiculous. I will stick it out as I have for 4 other seasons.

Arrow – This show is like Batman and Revenge but together. This guy has a list and he’s checking it twice. He also has a lair which he was all set up with computers and other equipment out of nowhere. I know we are supposed to suspend some belief in watching these shows but that part was just a mess. Besides these little annoyances, I liked the show. I feel like I already know where the show is going to go but I like the lead and the different people involved in the story. Not too bad of a pilot. I will keep watching this one and see if it gets better.

Beauty & The Beast – I don’t know about this show. It’s pretty bad; the kind of bad that still makes you watch, like a train wreck. I don’t know why they are calling this show Beauty and The Beast because the beast is not beastly at all. He’s more like the Hulk who only turns beastly when he gets angry. It’s so over dramatic but not in the fun way 90210 is. I think I was laughing for more than half of the premiere episode. Just skip this one unless you are a fan of terrible shows then please by all means continue to watch.

Nashville – It’s fantastic. It’s soapy but smart and beautifully written with amazing acting. I am slightly biased because I LOVE CONNIE BRITTON but even if I didn’t, this is still a great show. Hayden Panettiere is great playing a slutty Taylor Swift-esqe bad girl. Loved her for a long time so I’m very happy that she is back on television. After the premiere, I just see so many places that the show can go. If you were turned off by the Nashville aspect of the show, don’t worry about that there is plenty more there to watch. Give the show a try — unless you hate good  tv.

Chicago Fire – I thought this show was pretty good. I felt like I was watching Law & Order when I watched. Turns out it is produced by Dick Wolf, the producer of the Law & Order franchise. It has a good cast. Taylor Kinney who was Mason, Tyler’s uncle, on The Vampire Diaries all kinds of brooding hotness. Jesse Spencer, from House fame, plays the rival to Taylor Kinney’s character. Monica Raymund (Lie To Me) also stars. It was your typical procedural. Nothing spectacular but I’ll continue watching.

The Vampire Diaries – Sucks to be Matt since everyone is just gonna keep telling him they wished he died all season. I use to love Selena (Stephen and Elena) but after a season of them not being together, I’m way over them and hoping for some more Delena (Damon and Elena) this season. I don’t know what happened at the ending of this. It was so weird. I know all will be revealed soon though. Solid return episode and yesssssssssssssss Klaus is back and hopefully to stay.

What To Watch: October 8


The CW premieres officially start this week and I for one couldn’t be more excited (The Vampire Diaries on Thursday ahhhhhhhhh). Here is what premieres tonight.

8/7c – CW – 90210 – Season 5 Premiere. Naomi and Max make some big plans that go horribly awry when they both get arrested and land in jail. Liam is forced to put The Offshore up for sale to pay off Vanessa and buy out her $200,000 interest in Liam’s movie contract. Navid approaches Liam about becoming his business partner. Teddy is overwhelmed by Silver’s request to father her baby. Adrianna, unaware Dixon has gotten into a life-threatening accident, has an unforgettable evening in Las Vegas with a handsome stranger, Taylor, after she vows to get over Dixon and move on with her life. Annie asks Ade to return to Los Angeles to be with an unconscious Dixon, and the two girls decide to move into the beach house together. This show is so deliciously ridiculous and I just love every minute of it. I seem to have a love for the “evil” people on most of the shows I watch so of course AnnaLynne McCord’s Naomi is my favorite.

9/8c – CW – Gossip Girl – 6th and Final Season Premiere. After a brief encounter abroad, Chuck and Blair make a promise to each other about their relationship, which leaves them once again apart. Dan, with some help from an unlikely ally, Georgina, is writing a scathing tell-all book that can only mean trouble. As the sole head of The Spectator, Nate is making his own decisions and is ready to go up against Gossip Girl. As word spreads that Serena is missing, the gang bands together to find her and are shocked by what they find. This show has been downhill for a long time and should have ended about 2 seasons ago. Glad it’s ending now though. I mean it’s come to the point where I have this show on mute and only look to see what they are wearing. This show and Revenge have the best costume designers. I mean the clothes are just so amazing.

9/8c – TV One – Life After – Season 4 Premiere. Exploring the turning point in celebrities’ careers that altered their lives forever, the half-hour series highlights these moments from the point of view of the celebrity and those in their inner circle. In each episode, a celebrity reveals the stories behind the transformative events in their life, and the ways in which they evolved from these experiences.

Network Upfronts 2012


I know I’m over 3 weeks late here but…. better late than never right? So upfronts happened and brought about the final nail to the coffins of many shows as well as plenty of renewals for the networks. We also get a preview of what the fall 2012 has in store for us.

Lets’s start with ABC. Their cancelled shows for the 11-12 season were Charlie’s Angels, Desperate Housewives, GCB, Man Up!, Missing, Pan Am, The River and Work It. Renewed shows are Castle, Modern Family, Body of Proof, Cougar Town, Dancing With the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, Happy Endings, Last Man Standing, Once Upon A Time, Private Practice, Revenge, Suburgatory, The Bachelor, and The Middle.

I’m not really sad about any of the shows that were cancelled here. The only one that I feel they should have given more time to was GCB. Maybe let it run a little more in the summer to catch more of an audience. Their ratings weren’t terrible either so I didn’t really understand that one. As for everything that got renewed YES, YES, YES especially Cougar Town. TBS came in with a last minute save on the show because ABC was definitely going to ax it. So come this fall Cougar Town will no longer air on ABC but on TBS. Continue reading Network Upfronts 2012

Season Finales Tuesday 5/15/12


90210 – CW 8/7c – Season 4 finale. Naomi decides  to accept a job in New York. It probably has something to do with her ex Max getting married and her planning the wedding. Teddy returns (yay love him); Dixon tries to save his relationship with Adrianna (why? She’s so ridiculous); Silver must choose between Liam and Navid (Liam all the way).

NCIS – CBS 8/7c – Season 9 finale. NCIS and Navy are shaken by terrorism and  face devastating surprises; the case impacts Jimmy destination wedding.

 

NCIS: Los Angeles – CBS 9/8c – Season 3 Two hour finale.  The team confronts their vengeful criminal mastermind, The Chameleon, when an undercover case ignites a deadly mind game.

Fashion Star – NBC 10/9c – Season 1 finale. The remaining three contestants are tasked with creating separate showcases consisting of three garments for each of the retailers. The designer that can meet the needs of Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue will be named America’s first ”Fashion Star” and receive a capsule collection in each of the stores. The winning designs will be available online immediately and in stores the following day. Why is this show still on? And not only that NBC picked it up for another season. I mean really?? This show is beyond terrible. Well good luck with that fourth place status NBC.

Private Practice – ABC 10/9c – Season 5 finale. When Amelia goes into labor and makes the hardest decision of her life. All the doctors she had pushed away come to her aid. After Pete gets in trouble, he and Violet realize what they mean to one another, and Addison makes a choice.

FALL TV (Sorry DVR, Break Time Over)


Every year when September rolls around I always get excited.  Not just because it’s my birthday month but because fall tv returns. I LOVE FALL TELEVISION.  The networks roll out all their new shows that got picked up and old favorites return.  This fall there are over 127 new and returning shows starting Sept 13th from cable and the big 5 networks.    I will be watching all of the new ones for at least 3 or 4 episodes before I decide if they are any good and cut them off. How I’m going to manage that, I don’t know. Entertainment Weekly has a nice article with tips on  how to navigate the fall tv season so it’s gonna be all good.

This season there are many shows that I’m looking forward to, both new and returning, but I have managed to narrow down the list to 10 (5 returning and 5 new) that I think everyone should watch.
